Brian Brooks Dee Rees at the Gotham Awards

The awards season began in earnest last evening with the IFP sponsored Gotham Awards

Here are the female winners:

Breakthrough Director - Dee Rees - Pariah - hopefully this is the first of many awards for Dee this season.  Pariah opens December 28.

Best Film Not Playing at a Theatre Near You - Scenes from a Crime - directed by Blue Hadaegh & Grover Babcock

Breakthrough Actor - Felicity Jones - Like Crazy

Best Documentary - Better This World - directed by Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega (too bad it didn't make the short list for the Academy Awards)

Charlize Theron also received a career tribute.  Young Adult opens December 9.

Full list of winners.  They streamed the ceremony last night.  I watched some of it.  If you are interested, here it is.

    You missed the inaugural euphoria Calvin Klein Spotlight on Women Filmmakers 'Live the Dream' grant, which awarded $25,000 to Lucy Mulloy for her feature "Una Noche." The grant "aims to further the careers of emerging women directors by supporting the completion, distribution and audience engagement strategies of their first feature film."
